Board of Trustees FAQ

Steve Coon, Board Chair

"Over the past twelve years, I have watched the many achievements and the success of my two children in their time at the Academy and Berchmans.  Witnessing their growth into such well-rounded and goal-oriented young adults and knowing the impact that Sacred Heart has had in their lives, I am inspired to devote my time and efforts into continuing this legacy.  I am honored to be able to give back by serving on the Board of Trustees for three years and as the next board chair to ensure the future of Sacred Heart for the next 200 years."

Nicole Morrow, Past Chair

"To say that the past 17 years at Sacred Heart has been a blessing to my family would be a huge understatement.  My husband and I have watched our four daughters be nurtured into the fine young women that they are today through the Five Goals of Sacred Heart education that is embedded in every aspect of the school. I am grateful for the years I have served on the Board of Trustees, especially the last three, as Board Chair, because they have given me the opportunity to give back to a place that has given so much to me and my family."
